"A UNION OF FILMMAKING AND SPIRITUAL AWARENESS"
AQUARIAN is the first series of it's kind, a leap forward, and next step in the evolution of film's effect on human consciousness.
There is a magic that allows film to freeze a moment in time.
This magic comes from the light sensitive particles of microscopic "silver halide" (50x smaller than a human hair). When these particles of film are touched by light, they transform from a state of unexposed darkness to a state of bright illumination.
The more exposure to light, the brighter the particles become.
In essence, during the process of shooting a film, the information a subject emits enters the lens of the camera. This energy is captured by the unique particles and is eternalized in intricate patterns of light.
"the beautiful nature of Creativity"
Energy of Language
Both spoken and written words carry the spirit and quality of their creator. When we read or listen to one's words, the conscious thought of the speaker or writer is carried through the form of language; this then becomes unified with the listeners consciousness. This form of energy is nature's way of spreading information from one being to another. This gift has guided our planet through writing and storytelling for thousands of years.
Energy of Imagery
The sacredness of imagery is powerful. One's intention and essence is captured through the creation of their art. At the point of this imageries creation, "information" of the subject in that very moment is frozen in time, waiting to be integrated by a contemplative observer. We feel this essence clearly through looking at the photo of a lost relative or meditating on the image of a great teacher.
Through Film we can harmonize these energetic forms of communication.
With this energetic understanding and conscious approach to filmmaking...
AQUARIAN will showcase ideas, teachers, and teachings through thought provoking language, eye opening imagery, and attentive sound design.
"A communication Re:evolution"
We began with the spoken word, then written, recorded, radioed, televised, and now online and accessible for all seekers.
Today information is spread at the speed of light and in vast quantity like never before.
Over 1 trillion photos are taken per year, 72 hours of video content are uploaded every minute, and 6 billion hours of video are watched online each month. The vast majority of this content is created for simple entertainment.
This new interconnectivity has not yet reached it's maturity.
The ability to impart this much wisdom, curiosity, and quality information on this many people is unprecedented.
This interconnected web has opened up an opportunity to spread one's message through filmmaking, not as entertainment but guidance and edification.

About the Creator of Aquarian
"I'm a filmmaker using my art form to teach and inspire the next generation of creators."
As a young kid I'd listen to music with my headphones on full blast, imagining scenes and stories that fit together perfectly with all the amazing sounds I was hearing. Through these experiences I found my life's passion, creating films that engage the visual and auditory senses in ways that move people.
In the recent years, the same wonder that revealed my filmmaking passion has guided me to find mediation, yoga, qi gong, and healing techniques using sound and color. I wanted to begin using my fascination with sight and sound not to entertain, but to heal through sound and color therapy. Through new understandings but more often new questions, I felt that there was a shift happening in me and around me. It was time to take a step back from my current film career.
I took a year off from taking on new film projects and spent the majority of my time going inward. Through my daily practice, workshops, and retreats, I felt an inner transformation taking place. This re-awakening has lead me to a new space where I can see what has actually happened in my life, why it happened, and my purpose in this life as a soul.
This clarity and deep need to produce projects for a higher purpose has lead to the creation of AQUARIAN; The first of many projects to come on this journey of initiating as many sparks as possible in a...
